Data protection in time of business disruption: ensuring business continuity
As we see an increase in a distributed workforce model in organisations today, it can bring a considerable challenge for IT to ensure their infrastructure and more importantly, their data, remains protected and can be managed effectively to maintain business continuity. Whether it be internal or external threats – from user error through to ransomware attacks – the importance of ensuring exposure to vulnerabilities such as these is key. However, the reality in today’s highly digitised environment is that it’s not a matter of if events of this nature happen, it is when.
Today, IT leaders are responsible for maintaining their organisations’ business continuity. When it comes to valuable assets such as data – which tends to be described as the lifeblood of an organisation – how do you ensure it is protected across your infrastructure from your data centre to endpoint devices to the cloud, and that you can confidently recover with minimal impact in cost, efficiency, or even reputation?
- What are some of the hurdles and challenges that IT leaders are facing as a direct result of the global pandemic?
- What measures are IT leaders implementing to overcome these new work dynamics?
- What long-term and short-term impacts will the outbreak have on businesses and industries as a whole?
